We tumble and turn into form, bringing our particular consciousness to a fragment of space and time. We live a while, unfolding and discovering our potential, but all too soon we are gone again, disappearing without trace, back into the all that is...
But we never really go anywhere, not really. For we are always somewhere.
Some of us build and build over time. We draw to us all the component parts to become great towering energetic entities, that overshadow all others like the Gods and Giants of myth and legend. These beings can bring havoc and destruction wherever they go, and have little or no regard for those caught up in their need to fully express. They are the stormy souls of Nature who create great change, and sometimes, even though it may not seem like it at the time, for the better.
Then there are those that hardly seem to disturb the ripples of existence at all. They quietly appear out of a clear blue sky one day, drift and shine and smile for a few short moments and then be gone. Going unnoticed by eyes to busy to see, their gentle nature and purity a gift for a tired soul in need of love and comfort.
Some find their beauty and their glory at the dawning of their lives, and others their strength and fire at the eve. These beings light up the world with a power and intensity that leaves others in awe. Who could have imagined the depth and breadth of colour and character contained within such a dull exterior! Why, a moment ago they were simply a grey cloud! Now they hold us in their power and beauty, and we cannot bear to watch them fade.
Who knows how it will be at the end of our day? Will we light up the sky in farewell as we fade away, or will we let the sun go down without triumph and the peace of gentle darkness simply take us as we go?
We are but Clouds... Sometimes seen and sometimes not, but always somewhere... and always on our way.
